On Sunday, the Association of Igbo Town Unions, or ASETU, made it clear that it had yet to decide which candidate it would back in the 2023 presidential election.
Goldennewsng reports that this was contained in a report gave after the gathering in Enugu, endorsed by the Public President, Boss Emeka Diwe.
“To allow Nigerians all over the world to make informed choices devoid of tribal or any other cheap considerations,” the ASETU stated that it was deliberately delaying making a definitive statement regarding its preferred presidential candidate.
While communicating fulfillment at the degree of political awareness Nigerians are appearing towards the 2023 Official political race, the affiliation approached the electorate not to move toward the impending official political race with ancestral opinions nor early stage interest, “yet to assess the official applicants and for sure any remaining competitors, from the mark of precedence, execution, uprightness, equity, value, history and deliverable capacity.”
The report said, “The Town Associations thank the Autonomous Public Discretionary Commission (INEC), for embracing the Citizens Certification Framework (BVAs).
“The umbrella organization of all Igbo in Nigeria and the diaspora believes that if the system is well managed by INEC, it will significantly reduce rigging, overvoting, ballot box stuffing, and ballot box carting away, as well as other forms of electoral fraud.
“Also, Igbo Town Unions observed with appreciation the unusually patriotic zeal with which Nigerian youths pursue the collective goal of taking back Nigeria from those who have held it captive for many years.”
The Association urged the Federal Government of Nigeria to “prove its claim of abiding by the rule of law by toeing the path of honor, release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu immediately and unconditionally as ordered” by the Appeal Court of Nigeria, whose decisions are binding on all Nigerians.
It said that the federal government’s request for a Supreme Court option on the Mazi Nnamdi Kanu case was wrong and that the IPOB leader’s unconditional release would settle the South-East tensions and bring some peace back.
